Today I'm 35 weeks & 2 days. I went to the Dr. this morning. It looks like things are starting to happen! Very exciting, but still a little too early. I'm dilated 2 cm & my cervix is thinning. I have what you would call a "weak cervix". He doesn't want this little girl coming this early. Because my cervix is weak, he has put me on a medication to stop contractions. As far as I know I haven't had any contractions yet, but judging from my track record, I may not even know if I have or not. I have definitely had pain, but I can't pinpoint it as being a "contraction". He doesn't want contractions to break my water. So I will take the meds for 2 weeks to try and slow the process down a little. He really wants me to get to 37 weeks. I'll update you again after next weeks appointment, or before if she decided to come sooner. Please keep her & I in your prayers. We want a precious healthy baby girl!

On Saturday, Davis got to wear his new pair of overalls. Actually, they are a very very old pair of overalls. These have been in David's family for about 35 years. All the boy's in David's family have worn them & then passed them down to the next. David wore them when he was about 2 years old (1979). We have counted and Davis will be the 10th little boy in the family to wear them. They are very worn & rusted at the straps, but that just gives them character! Davis got to go on a special trip in his new "old" overalls. We went to McDonald's for his 1st happy meal. I think he enjoyed it, but It think his Daddy enjoyed it more. So, we will have these special overalls in our family, until a new Wright comes along. Then they will be passed down, for that little boy to enjoy!

I went to the Dr. yesterday. I was 33 weeks 2 days. He did the same test that he's done the last 3 times. I got a call today and the swab test came back neg for preterm labor. The other test showed that things are still looking pretty good also. I am dilated a little more, but not thinned out much more than last time! He said to "Keep this little girl in", so that's what I intend to do! He will do the same tests in another 2 weeks (35 weeks) and then the testing will stop. At that point, I'll be one week away from when I delivered with Davis. He said he doesn't want her to come any sooner than that. Keep her in your prayers & I'll keep you posted!

I'm posting this a little late, but here are a few picture of our Labor Day weekend. We had a great time. Davis did a little swimming & a little golfing! We also worked on some projects for the baby's room. The picture is of the cornice board & drapes we made to match her bedding. It was a family affair. My dad, mom, David & Davis all pitched in to help! Just one step closer to getting our little girl's room finished!
